Mouthguards are worn to protect the teeth, mouth, and tongue during athletic activities and are absolutely necessary and should be considered as important as a football, baseball or soccer ball. There are two types of mouthguards: custom-fit and do-it-yourself (boil and bite).
Let us help you. There are many advantages to wearing a custom-fit rather than a do-it-yourself mouthguard.
- Increased comfort
- Easier to communicate with team members
- Easier to breathe
- Thin and fits snug against the teeth
- Increased willingness to wear
It is easy to see that, when a mouthguard is comfortable, it will be worn more often, reducing the risk of trauma and injury to the mouth and teeth. Thicker do-it-yourself mouthguards are not user-friendly and often stay in the athletic bag. We provide two types of custom-fit mouthguards at The Gorman Center for Fine Dentistry; one for protection, and the Under Armour Performance Mouthguard.
Why Choose Under Armour?
Under Armour Performance Mouthwear has been engineered to unlock the power, endurance, and overall potential in athletes. During times of stress, concentration, and athletic performance, the natural tendency of athletes is to clench their jaw. This can actually inhibit an athlete’s performance by stimulating the release of excess cortisol and lactic acid. Under Armour Performance Mouthwear increases performance by lowering the release of these chemicals. Studies show increased endurance and a reduction in reaction time and athletic stress while wearing a Performance Mouthguard.
‘‘I always wear my under armor mouthguard. It increases my power and is the most comfortable mouthguard I’ve ever had.’’
